The 2014 Alexander McQueen Collection Brings A Contemporary Touch To The 1940s
It’s been a whole since we’ve seen a collection with such a special background and inspiration. We’re now talking about the latest Alexander McQueen collection. The inspiration in this case came from the 1940s, in particular from the various uniforms women used to wear in that period. During the war, uniforms were very common especially in hospitals or factories. This collection brings them back to life but, of course, with some contemporary flair.
The collection includes symbolic elements such as the white dresses with ruffles, the fluffy skirt, the denim suit and the jackets from that period. They’ve all been beautifully restyled and now they’re part of a modern collection which combined old and new in a very bohemian and elegant manner. Of course, it’s a look not everyone can pull off but it’s also a collection that comes like a breath of fresh air.
The inspiration is great and the way it’s been adapted to the modern days is also fabulous. It’s a collection for strong but sexy women who aren’t afraid to make a statement with their wardrobe. The collection is also very versatile and the pieces can be adapted to a variety of looks.
